New itunes account (s) for brothers with new ipods??
I just purchased an ipod touch for each of my teenage boys for their birthdays. We do not have itunes accounts yet. They most likely will want much of the same music on their ipods.
What is the best way to set up the account?
Should we get one itunes account and have them set up different libraries to upload to their ipods?
Should they have separate itunes accounts? Can they merge the music if they want some of the same music?
I just want to set up correctly from the beginning. They will be using the same computer when they use itunes.
Thanks in advance!

Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash
Hopefully it's not been too long since you last upgraded iTunes, in fact if you get an empty/incomplete library immediately after upgrading then with the following steps you shouldn't lose a thing or need to do any further housekeeping. In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.
See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.
When you get it all working make a backup!
